About Me

My photo
I live and write out of Victoria, Canada. I've been writing consistently since 2018, mostly dark humour, autobiographical or speculative short fiction, after working many years as the teacher at a Forensic Psychiatric Hospital. Over eighty stories have been published in literary and other magazines and webzines, mostly in the U.K., U. S. A., and Canada. Links to my music videos are included on the blog.

  1. Hello Kim Harrison, this is William Barnes, your old friend from our bicycle trip through Mexico, Belize, and Guatemala. Sorry that we lost touch. I moved and I think you did too. I found your web site here and I'm very glad that you have been writing and playing music, very impressive. Please email me at williambarnesx@yahoo.com. Regards, Bill

  2. Hello Kim,
    This is Marco Etheridge. You might remember me from Literally Stories. First, I very much admire and enjoy your short fiction. Second, I have become involved as an editor in a literary 'Zine named Hotch Potch. Our first issue was published in June of this year. For our next issue, we want to widen our scope and invite writers whose work we respect. That is why I am contacting you. Our next issue will publish in January of 2023, but I am starting the process now. I would be thrilled if you would accept an invitation to contribute a story to Hotch Potch. You can reach me via email at: squeakyeye@me.com. Thanks very much and best regards, Marco Etheridge
